- Another Ohio Athletics season is starting and the Ohio IMG Sports Network is ready to cover it.
Every football and men's basketball game broadcast is available network wide. Bobcat Sports Today, a daily sports report, starts Aug. 25 on many network stations. The Frank Solich Show debuts on that date with a change in time.
The weekly show will air live on Monday's from 11-Noon from Donatos in Athens. The second installment of the Solich Show will air on Tuesday, Sept. 2 because of Labor Day.
The Ohio IMG Sports Network is the largest in the MAC with 15 stations that stretches into three states with WXTQ, Power 105 in Athens, returning as the flagship station.
The network blankets the southern and central portion of Ohio. Plus, fans in West Virginia and Kentucky have access to a radio signal. A total of eight stations will carry the Solich Show, either live or on tape delay, while 10 stations will air Bobcat Sports Today.
"Voice of the Bobcats" Russ Eisenstein returns for his seventh season. Rob Cornelius has been associated with the network since 1997 and is back with color commentary.
"We've told the story of so many great Ohio moments during my time in Athens and I hope there are many more in 2014-15," Eisenstein said. "It's our goal to present a broadcast product that's informative, entertaining and fun. We want the best fans in the MAC to be treated to the best broadcast in the MAC and one of the best in the country."
Each football game broadcast starts with an hour pregame show and concludes with a comprehensive postgame report. In advance of Ohio's game at Kentucky, Eisenstein and Cornelius will host "Ohio Roadtrip Live" from Lexington on Thursday, Sept. 4th from 6-7pm.
